That’s how I learnt and that’s what the bowlers need You need to have bowling strength as well Your arm should know the muscle memory FP: You used to take a lot of wickets in the first over How does one develop this habit and skill of getting wickets early Vaas: Skills come from your training The amount of hours you are bowling in the nets Bowling in one area you’ve got to do ‘spot bowling’ and try to develop your skills and have confidence to do that FP: Do you think mindset is important here because a lot of bowlers have gone on the defensive trying to control the runs but with you it was different Vaas: If you ask anyone what is a fast bowler’s role he will tell you it’s taking wickets and not conceding runs So you’ve got to do both at the same time FP: How important is visualisation to a bowler Vaas: It’s very important You need to have confidence and focus Just leave behind what has happened in the past and what the batsman is going to do Just concentrate and visualise that I am the best and bowl according to that FP: Did you visualise before a match and say ‘Right I am going to bowl this in-swinging delivery and try and get a batsman like Sachin Tendulkar or another great batsman out bowled through the gate with the in-swinger’ Vaas: Visualising is not about visualising all the time It’s just 10-15 minutes before the game The previous night you can visualise what do you want to do where you are going to bowl Just have it in your mind Then only concentrate on what you can do FP: With big bats small grounds and flat pitches the bowlers are taking a beating especially in limited overs How much of a mental impact does it have on them Vaas: I don’t think the bowlers will suffer from a mental impact It depends on how the bowler takes it When the first IPL edition was launched people thought that T20 is a batsman’s game; there is no mercy for the bowlers But when the second third and fourth IPLs arrived it showed that the bowlers also have learnt so much and it can become a bowler’s game too So you can’t say that the bowlers are having tremendous pressure However they are still learning They have to believe in themselves that they are good enough and know how to contain runs in a game FP: Does limited overs form impact a bowler’s performance in Tests Vaas: Most of the bowlers will struggle if they don’t have any variations Test cricket is a different game ODI is a different game In Tests you can stick to one plan or vary itbecause you have 90 overs and you don’t have any restrictions You can bowl 20-25 overs But when it comes to ODIs you (only) have 10 overs with field restrictions So you need to have some sort of a plan and variations "In those days when you say fast bowlers they always fielded at fine leg or something like that but now-a-days most of the pacers they field at slip gully or mid off They really train themselves and being fast bowlers they are very supple and adapt to all situations" FP: Do variations differ in Tests and T20s Vaas: Automatically it varies Test cricket is a five-day game; you have a lot of time and overs and the batsmen do not try to go after the bowling like the shorter formats However now even Test cricket has changed and the bowlers have learnt bowling in all the formats Fast bowlers have also become clever and tried to adapt to different situations They can try to devise the same strategy used in ODIs and T20s in Tests as well to take wickets FP: Is fast bowling more mentally draining now than before with bowlers having to continuously evolve in challenging era Vaas: The game has developed into a high intensity one The bowlers have also learnt a lot from that There are different slower balls and the bowlers have also worked out how they are going to contain runs and take wickets Depending on the situation they have adapted well FP: Does that mental pressure affect the consistency of a bowler Vaas: Especially in T20s But you never take the same mentality into ODIs and Tests T20 is such a short and high intensity game you’ve got to focus a lot But when it comes to Tests and ODIs there’s a different mentality You never confuse between all these formats As a fast bowler you just forget about the past and look forward You have six balls and even if someone goes after one you have another five to bounce back strongly FP: How would you have coped in this era of big hitting How would you have bowled to people like Chris Lynn and Glenn Maxwell Vaas: In my era there was no Maxwell or Lynn But we had people like (Virender) Sehwag (Matthew) Hayden (Sanath) Jayasuriya It was very hard (to bowl to them) These people go after every ball The margin of error is very little You’ve got to focus every ball You have to give 100 percent But I have done it It’s a game that deals with the bat and ball and not the person So you’ve got to take it as it comes FP: Shane Bond recently said that it would be tough for the bowlers to switch from IPL to Champions Trophy after one month of T20s How does a pacer switch swiftly between different formats Vaas: It differs from pacer to pacer Some adapt quickly some don’t The person who has a strong mind and belief will adapt quickly You need to be mentally strong especially fast bowlers But cricket has become more professional and bowlers can handle the transition well FP: It’s all about skill with fast bowling nowadays Do you think the thrill and joy of raw pace has started to disappear Vaas: When you start playing T20s even if you bowl at 150 kmph the bowl will go the distance The batters have adapted When you bowl faster and faster and the ball keeps disappearing the bowler is thinking: "There is no point bowling fast I will try and bowl slower balls and try to stop the batsman go after me" Recently I have seen even the bowlers who bowl 150 kmph bowl one at 150 kmph but the other ones are 120 kmph 125 kmph FP: Do you think pace is still an intimidating factor in Tests Vaas: It’s not just the pace If a bowler is bowling 150 kmph-plus without swing batsmen are very good at handling it especially players with a good eye But if you bowl 145 kmph-plus with swing it’s the toughest to face So it’s not just about pace FP: How much does aggression play a part in the modern era Vaas: Well when you become a fast bowler you need to have aggression Being aggressive doesn’t mean going at the batsman or having a blast at him Aggression has to be shown via your skill By taking wickets and looking at the batsman Just eye to eye contact and good body language is good enough to show your aggression FP: Why do you think Sri Lanka have struggled to produce many successful fast bowlers Is it because the tracks are unhelpful Or something related to the coaching or schools structure?
